It was only yesterday that Rohit Sharma called Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar the best death bowlers in the modern day game. Now there is someone else who is applauding them and terming them as the best but this time it’s someone from the Kiwis dugout.
While Rohit Sharma termed Bhuvi and Bumrah as the best death bowlers, Colin Munro believes that Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the best new ball bowlers.
Colin Munro looked in great touch in the decider ODI at Kanpur and almost won it for his team. He says that Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah form the best pair of new ball bowlers under the sub-continent conditions.
We are sure that both Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah will treat Munro with a big smile when they next meet him in lieu of this classy compliment extended to them by Munro. Both the pacers are capitalising on every opportunity coming their way to perfection.
“The big challenge for me was just actually finding a good tempo to bat at. I’d like to say that I want to go and blast off in the first 10 overs but it’s not always going to be the case, especially when you are playing against Bhuvi and Bumrah, the two best opening bowlers in these conditions,” Colin Munro was quoted as saying by News18.com.
New Zealand put India in trouble by winning the first game at Wankhede but India later made sure that they win the series despite the blow at Mumbai. The action then shifted to Pune and from there to Kanpur and India proved as to why they are at the pinnacle of the ICC ODI team rankings.
But when it comes to T20s it is New Zealand which is at the apex of the ICC rankings and India features at the 5th spot in list. So, India must be watchful! Talking about success in T20s Munro said, “We have been lucky enough for the last couple of years to be successful. Looking forward to the series and it should be a good one”
He also talked about how the absence of Luke Ronchi and Mitchell McClenaghan bothered the team since they have been out owing to injuries. But he also appreciated Tom Latham for having performed really well in the season.
